.750 - The Capitals’ points percentage in the second game of two-game sets this year, winning five of their eight games in the back half of those mini-series (5-1-2 overall). That includes a 3-0-1 record on the road, with wins against the Sabres, Penguins and Devils in Game 2 of each series and an OT loss in their first run through Pittsburgh.

Of their five wins overall, three of them (and one of the OT/SO losses) was earned after taking the first game of the series, going 3-1-1 in those games (2-0-1 on the road). That’s slightly outperforming the rest of the League, which has had its struggles in that department:

The Caps will look to improve their record to 4-1-1 - and 6-1-2 overall - when they wrap up their series in Boston, fresh off their shootout win Wednesday night.
